Lots of people taking photos at this show – including me.
I first heard about these through an interview with Matthew Sweet, whose album “100% Fun” was the soundtrack to my teenage years. I looked for one of these incredibly rare beasts on eBay every single day for about 3 years, with no luck.
One Easter Sunday morning, I found one. Having clicked ‘Buy It Now’ with a trembling finger, on reaching checkout I realised it was actually Matthew Sweet selling it!
I wrote him an email saying much the same as above, but never got a reply.
Here’s an article that he wrote about the guitar.
I’ve had a lovely day at Brian’s studio working on a remix and playing with a new programming system he’s invented. This was hanging on the wall. It was distracting.
“Mosaic” was played on today’s show. Thanks Jarvis!
Messing about with this
I’ve spent the last couple of days with Dan Lea, a highly original composer and sound-designer. He always pushes me to get guitar sounds neither of us have heard before. Swelteringly hot in my studio, I thought my laptop might fan itself to death. Here are some excerpts (guitar through pedals into MainStage channel strips).
